Every year a new dining craze explodes across the Valley and in 2010, gluten free dining took center stage. Numerous restaurants throughout the Phoenix area have now added gluten-free options to their menus to accommodate diners with celiac disease or specific wheat allergies. Instead of avoiding the bread, pasta and pizza, now diners can enjoy the best that carbs have to offer while, remaining gluten free. By going gluten free, these restaurants have managed to turn these formerly food no-no’s into a big delicious yes.
Nourish is the ultimate dining destination for a vegan, lactose-free and gluten-free friendly menu. Elegant while earthy, this Phoenix healthy hot spot is a great place to grab lunch or have a few organic cocktails with friends. Located at the chic new Optima Camelview Village, just north of Fashion Square Mall, Nourish even has a weekend brunch which includes home-style favorites such as of fresh gluten-free blueberry waffles. Though Nourish can accommodate any diet restriction, the dishes are so varied and delicious that it you won’t even miss the gluten, promise!
